Abstract

This chapter provides a description of grey fuzzy multi-objective optimization. A prerequisite background on grey systems, along with preliminary definitions is provided. Formulation of the grey fuzzy optimization starting with a general fuzzy optimization problem is discussed. Extension of the grey fuzzy optimization with the acceptability index to include multiple objectives is presented. Application of the grey fuzzy multi-objective optimization is demonstrated with the problem of waste load allocation in the field of environmental engineering.
